Every international typhoon watch organisation, including JTWC, have all called it a typhoon, so, there we go. It is a typhoon. @Burgan, you need to read up:

Every international typhoon watch organisation, including JTWC, and the US Navy have all called it a typhoon, so, there we go. @UK, thanks for the details. Interesting. But some people don’t know what tropical cyclone is!

@Becu: A majority of Japanese do not like or support either Abe or the LDP, a majority of those who vote do, a very different and important distinction. Yet, with these kind of deliveries by the ruling class, even the old faithful will begin to twitch. Foreign influence, policy and money has shaped Japan since GHQ took over, from the constitution, to the politics. The LDP was heavily financed and supported by the CIA, so “foreigners” have not just “known better” but actually “acted”.

An entire species is under threat for the arrogant appeasement of just a few, mostly, men. Japan, stand up and tell them NO.

Obscene IMO, people needing medical procedures, or not enough to eat, would benefit from 5 million yen.

I am very rich but this is ridiculous!

Truly rich people NEVER say or write that they are. Is that you Trumpy?

To date, 79 of the 116 league titles have been won by Northern England sides. The same pattern is reflected in the stats that European campaigns show, the north of England dominants English football. The important European Cup will be going North AGAIN this year too. Enjoy your shandies southern boys.

Heroes who gave the ultimate sacrifice when they needn’t have if the society in whim they lived protected them as it should. Rest in peace? No, rest in anger, I hope their deaths haunt the NRA, the free reign gun tooting NRA. Shame on them.

The technological advance that this building ushered in as it was built over a 200 year span were ground breaking. Truly hope the north rose window has survived, it is the only one left that is original, finished in 1260!

Posted in: ANA unveils new Boeing 787-10 for international routes See in context

Boeing has a far better safety record than Airbus.

Not true. Both manufacturers, when you look at Full Loss Event (FLE), which is the proportion of people killed in a plane crash, are essentially identical:

Airbus: 24 FLE, 35 crashes, 0.686 FLE/crash

Boeing: 171.95 FLE, 251 crashes, 0.685 FLE/crash

Posted in: ANA unveils new Boeing 787-10 for international routes See in context

Those saying it isn’t of concern, connected or relevant, well, it is. It’s the company’s culture that is terrifying, pushing through an aircraft without training to “save money", the connection to the FAA, the slow response to obvious issues that killed 189 people with the Lion Air flight. All VERY concerning.

The ‘It’ll never happen to me” syndrome. Antenna fixing/field checking in a typhoon, working the fields in a heatwave, no supervision of toddlers/children on the balcony, in the carpark, outside the house...

It DOES happen. Know this.

@JT, that’s an odd photo to lead this news with, showing a mass murderer in a serene state of what looks like peaceful contemplation. He brought nothing but death, fear and destruction.

Now -- in our house -- we’re for Japan staying in until the final just for the sheer gall of being for that ball 1 billion %. Fantastic tactics until that last corner... a need for redemption, for the way they played Poland having to be put right, for sure. What a World Cup!

Posted in: Osaka Gas expects to take over a week to restore some supply after quake See in context

A maximum of 12 days to bring all customers back online, with the repairs, checks and checks again to ensure safety on a heavily failsafe guarded system? Seems reasonable to me. So few fires -- 3? -- no explosions and no city blocks, towns or villages told to evacuate due to gas leaks after a 6.1 earthquake: QED.

Posted in: Marijuana tops paint thinner as most abused substance in Japan See in context

As with any substance that we ingest, too much of a good thing can be bad. Especially when comparing modern marijuana to products even 15 years ago, the level of THC is much greater now. An overdose on marijuana is dissimilar to overdoses on other drugs because marijuana consumption, in and of itself, is not life-threatening. But using too much of the drug can have hazardous results, which may increase the risk of death.

Someone who consumed a lot of marijuana may be unaware of their environment, which can lead to accidents. Furthermore, marijuana intoxication has been linked, in some studies, with psychosis, resulting in hallucinations, delusions, or extreme paranoia. A person who is having a psychotic episode may put themselves in dangerous situations due to confusion or detachment.
